Award winner of the 3D Festival in Copenhagen 2000 for best student animation, "Illusion" breaks through the idea of a real world and a dream of an artist.
It brings you through a magic travel from the old city's streets of Lausanne Switzerland to an artist apartement were reality will become illusion for a lapse of time. A drawing of a feary comes to live by the magic touch of a flying maple leaf....
The Artist Sébastien Guenot has conjointly with his friend Jerry started ORCAVISIONS Digital Art Studio AB after there graduation in Vancouver Film School in 2000. Orcavisions is focued on 3D animation and Fx and has also won an award for a realistic digital monkey at the 3D festival 2000.

The soundtrack was done by">Marie Heddelin, feel free to contact her as well if like the music !

Dear Sebastien,

A truly great animation short. Particularly given that you made it in 1999.

The version on this site is let down a little by the relatively poor resolution and the abrupt end to the sound track.

Any chance of re-rendering the short, re-mixing the sound track at a higher resolution and including a nice fade-out and ressurecting your web site to carry it, in the way many other animators have done? It would make a great showcase for your work.

Very nice concept. Really well done modeling, animation, and texturing (the goldfish man!)

The soundtrack was nice. What song is that? I like it a lot. Very trancy, just like the short.

Good movements on that "flying thing" (Im swedish) Like Loic says: Great atmosphere..
Loïc Surprenant on 15 January 2001
well , that's what we call a clip well done , !
You have potential , we can see that you have great skills with lightning and mapping .

Your animation skills I am sure are good but we didn't see how good you are , but for the atmosphere of the clip , it's just great .

And by the way ,

I would like to know who is the signer in that cute song of yours .
